Issac Asimov quote about Libertarianism

I've been reading parts of Isaac Asimov's memoir I. Asimov, and this quote caught my eye (page 308):

He always pictured himself a libertarian, which to my way of thinking means ``I want the liberty to grow rich and you can have the liberty to starve''. It's easy to believe that no one should depend on society for help when you yourself happen not to need such help.

Quite so. One reason why I say Libertarianism Makes You Stupid.
